The old man finally returned home to his family after leaving them behind to travel for better opportunities 42 years ago.
The man identified as Hiltan Kalugho is said to have left his family in Kenya to travel to Europe to gather fortunes for himself but had his bad luck not favoring his demands as he spent the little he got on himself.
Life didn’t play out for Kalugho as the money he was making was barely enough to survive.
He first worked as a gemstone miner before trying his hands on livestock herding at the border town of Mocoroni.
Speaking with Sunday Nation, Hiltan said, “I left home in search of greener pastures because I wanted a good future for my children. Unfortunately, I was unable to come back home because I did not get the money I expected to get to feed my family.
“We did not get any breakthrough. What we used to get was only enough to sustain us.”
Kalugho revealed that he never remarried and was looking forward to reuniting with his wife and children but only came to find out they’ve all passed away.
“I feel so bad that some of my family members are not here to witness the reunion. I had longed to see my wife and all my children,” he said.
